Hawaii-based Pasha Hawaii on Saturday (29 July) welcomed the newest member to its container ship fleet with the arrival of MV Janet Marie at the Port of Long Beach in California, where it will begin its maiden voyage to Honolulu, Hawaii. 

Janet Marie is the second of two new ‘Ohana Class, 774-foot Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG)-powered container ships built at AmFELS. The new vessel joins Pasha Hawaii’s fleet serving the Hawaii/Mainland trade lane, as well as the company’s first ‘Ohana Class vessel, MV George III, which began service on August 17, 2022.

Following Janet Marie’s inaugural visit to Long Beach, she will head to Hawaii, arriving in the Port of Honolulu, her home port. Like George III, Janet Marie operates on LNG from day one in service. 

The new Jones Act vessel surpasses the International Maritime Organization (IMO) 2030 emission standards for ocean vessels, accompanying her sister ship, George III, in representing the most technologically advanced and environmentally friendly vessels to serve Hawaii.

“Today represents another milestone as we celebrate the second of our two ‘Ohana Class vessels,” said George Pasha, IV, President and CEO, Pasha Hawaii. 

Named after Pasha, IV’s late mother, Janet Marie along with George III, mark three generations of dedicated service to both California and Hawaii.

“These ships symbolize the best of American ingenuity and ship building,” added Pasha, IV. “My mother was a wonderful supporter of the entire Pasha enterprise, and like my father, had much aloha for our team members, colleagues and partners. We are extremely grateful to the Port of Long Beach for their invaluable partnership and support in bringing both George III and Janet Marie to fruition.”

“Pasha Hawaii’s newest containership represents our move toward a cleaner future for this Port, our community, and the supply chain,” said Port of Long Beach CEO Mario Cordero. “Reducing emissions caused by port operations has been a long-time practice for us, and remains our priority until we reach a goal of deploying all zero-emission cargo-handling equipment by 2030, and zero-emission trucks by 2035.”

“We are proud to be one of the global ports capable of accommodating ships operating on cleaner fuels, putting us on a path to enhancing air quality throughout the region,” said Long Beach Harbor Commission President Sharon L. Weissman. “We thank Pasha Hawaii for leading the way in cleaner shipping at the Green Port.”

Singapore-based Eastern Pacific Shipping (EPS) on Wednesday (28 February) said it signed two new contract orders in a signing ceremony in Shanghai, one for a series of ammonia dual-fuel bulk carriers with CSSC Beihai Shipbuilding and another for a series of LNG dual-fuel oil tankers with CSSC Guangzhou Shipbuilding International. 

The contracts signed cover four 210,000 dwt ammonia dual-fuel bulk carriers and two 111,000 dwt LNG dual-fuel LR2 oil tankers, expanding our fleet of green vessels on water. 

“These are pivotal for EPS, testament to our continued commitment towards the decarbonisation of shipping,” EPS said in a social media post.

Manifold Times recently reported EPS signing a contract for its first ever wind-assisted propulsion system, partnering with bound4blue to install three 22-metre eSAILs® onboard the Pacific Sentinel

The turnkey ‘suction sail’ technology, which drags air across an aerodynamic surface to generate exceptional propulsive efficiency, will be fitted later this year, helping the 183-metre, 50,000 DWT oil and chemical tanker reduce overall energy consumption by approximately 10%, depending on vessel routing.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP), a joint venture between MMC Group and APM Terminals, on Wednesday (28 February) announced a significant milestone with the successful completion of its first Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) bunkering operation. 

The landmark event involved the CMA CGM Monaco, a 14,024 TEUs (Twenty-foot Equivalent Units) capacity containership operated by French shipping giant, CMA CGM.

Tan Sri Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, Chairman of PTP in a statement remarked this latest milestone demonstrates PTP’s commitment to continuously enhance its competitive advantages in an increasingly competitive global market.

“The successful completion of our first LNG bunkering operation also underscores our unwavering commitment to sustainability and environmental leadership. We are proud to partner with Petronas Trading Corporation Sendirian Berhad (PETCO) and CMA CGM on this initiative and showcase PTP’s capabilities as a leading facilitator of clean and efficient maritime operations.”

“This milestone paves the way for further growth in LNG bunkering at PTP, contributing significantly to the decarbonisation of the maritime industry.”

Commenting on this achievement, Mark Hardiman, Chief Executive Officer of PTP stated this latest milestone further highlights PTP’s position as the largest transshipment hub terminal in Malaysia.

“In preparation for the LNG bunkering operation, PTP worked closely since March 2022 with PETCO and CMA CGM, as well as with various other related government agencies to organise table-top exercises (TTX) and workshops, before carrying out the deployment exercise.”

“The success of the bunkering operation is a result of the seamless collaboration and preparations involving rigorous safety procedures through in-depth operational and risk assessments, modelling, and validation. We thank PETCO, CMA CGM all other involved parties for their joint efforts in operationalising the bunkering capability and we welcome partners to work with us to accelerate maritime decarbonisation,” said Hardiman.

Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP) is Malaysia’s largest transshipment hub with the capacity to handle 13 million TEUs annually. The port delivers reliable, efficient, and advanced services to major shipping lines and box operators, providing shippers in Malaysia and abroad with extensive connectivity to the global market. PTP is currently ranked 15th among the world top container ports.

Roll-on/roll-off (Ro-Ro) shipping company Wallenius Wilhelmsen on Tuesday (27 February) declared options to build four additional next-generation Shaper Class pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) vessels.

“Together with our customers we are committed to further shaping our industry and accelerating towards net zero. These new vessels are a vital part of that journey,” says Xavier Leroi, EVP & COO Shipping Services.

This latest commitment brings the total number of Shaper Class vessels currently on order with Jinling Shipyard (Jiangsu) to eight. Wallenius Wilhelmsen also retains further options.

The first of the Shaper Class vessels already ordered are expected to be delivered in the second half of 2026. The four additional vessels under the declared options will be delivered between May and November 2027.
